Relax in this Upscale Beach Home ~ Private Pool ~ Close to the Beach
average rating of 3.0 based on 3 reviews

House is beautiful. The furnishings are shabby, broken and worn out.

  • 3 of 5

The overall house is amazing. It is very spacious. The elevator is a great amenity and a must. The neighborhood is quiet and the proximity to the beach is great. The furnishings are shabby, broken and in disrepair. The furniture on the 3rd floor balcony has rusted legs resulting in the couch collapsing when a guest sat on it. The fireplace and sound system in the living room did not work and we were told that it had not been working for sometime. The 2nd floor master suite has a couch with an armrest panel hanging off. The panel had spikes in it which was a hazard for my 4 year old grandson. The cover on the balcony lounge chair was ripped in several places. Unusable! Numerous wooden window blinds were broken and the drapes did not meet to close. A second floor bedroom had a blood stained mattress cover that also soiled the sheets and comforter. We discovered this at bedtime. Just so happened we bought extra sheets, because there was none in the house. The sheets were delivered the next day and handed to us. The propane tank on the grill was emptied. A new one was delivered and left for us to replace. I was disappointed to say the least. My family spends each Thanksgiving in Destine. I do not think I will trust any properties managed by Southern Vacations again.

Owner's Response: Southern has been in contact with this guest since their stay to find a happy resolution for the problems they experienced while staying with us. We are taking all feedback regarding the condition of the property and/or it's furnishing to the owner to discuss replacement. Southern does not advertise the property to have a working fireplace or sound system. We will be speaking with our housekeeping staff to ensure our expectations for them are understood, as we do agree that the condition of the sheets was unacceptable. We do hope that this guest will reconsider staying with Southern in the future and allow us a second chance to show them a more memorable vacation. Warmest regards, Lakyn

Horrible Service

  • 1 of 5

The house is beautiful just as the picture shows but that was about it for our vacation. We had issues from the time we arrived until the time we checked out. Although the overview states the house has a elevator you can not use it without paying an additional deposit which they do not tell you upfront. We found out when we arrived by a note on the elevator door. We had a couple of elderly ladies with us and that was one of the reasons we picked this house as the kitchen, living room and dining room are located on the 3rd floor. The house was not very clean, the beds on the 1st floor were not made, the sheets were folder and placed under the bedspreads...not on the beds. There were dry food on dishes and silverware, mice droppings in drawer, stain/dirty comforters, loose railing on patio located on the 3rd floor, trash in the yard, TV in game room did not work, stereo speakers outside by the pool did not work, and the bicycles they provide broke as the chain came off while we were riding which caused injuries to the foot/knee where the person in our party could not get in the water from day 2 of our vacation. They brought us 2 blankets as they had to take the comforter for special cleaning. They did finally come pick up the trash in the yard. The TV, speakers. railing and bikes were never fixed before we left. The picture shows a hot tub attached to the pool but when questioned we were told it was a little pool....then when we arrived and saw it had jets but a lock on the "spa heater". I called to ask about it again and they said it was a martini pool "it did not have jets". I stated I am looking at it and the lock on the side that states "spa heater" they finally said the owner did not want anyone to use it. I called 4 days straight in a row with some type of issue and then just gave up. Now it's a month later and we still have not received the deposit back for the elevator we had to pay. We have stayed at several different places in Destin, FL over the years and have never had any issues like this ever. It is sad that anyone should have to endure some of these things, but all of these that is ridiculous. All that they said was "sorry". We will not stay at a property managed by this management company ever again!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback about your stay with us at Southern Vacation Rentals. We sincerely apologize about the inconveniences you experienced during your stay. We take great pride in our rentals and we regret to hear how these inconveniences affected your vacation. We did have our Property Conditions Managers come to correct the items that were reported to our guest services staff. We apologize that the cable, due to an outage that needed to be addressed by the cable company, and the outdoor speaker system were not able to be repaired quickly. The martini pool that is attached to the main pool is not considered a hot tub nor advertised as one cannot be heated as you would heat a hot tub. We apologize for the delay in the refund of the elevator deposit. We do state on our website that the elevator can be requested but there is a refundable fee for the use of the elevator. We did discuss in length the unfortunate situation with the bikes. We also offered to contact that company on your behalf and have the bike replaced which your party declined. Once again thank you for the valuable feedback about your stay and please accept our apologies for the inconveniences you experienced.

This home is a DREAM!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful in EVERY way. It's very large so there's plenty of room to spread out and not be crowded. We have 7 adults(3 couples) and 4 children traveling with us and the space was more than adequate. The furnishings were nice and the kitchen was lovely! We enjoyed the pool table in the house, the private pool, and we were steps away from the beach.

The only minor drawback was that the bunk room is the only bedroom on the 1st floor so the children, who in our case are small, were unattended and we were concerned that they might walk out of the front door and into the pool which is just outside of the front door.

Nevertheless, this home is every thing you would want in a home in Destin: beautiful, very spacious, well furnished, updated, and very close to the beach!
